Become a Drone Pilot

About the Scholarship

The goal of the scholarship is to support high school students who are serious about becoming a certified drone pilot by helping them prepare for the FAA's Part 107 test. The Part 107 test covers everything you need to know to fly a drone commercially in the U.S. In case you’re wondering, the minimum age required to be a commercial drone pilot is 16.

An additional goal is to help further the use of drones in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education. Drones have been used in the classroom in a variety of STEM settings over the last several years, and we’re excited for the possibilities drones present when it comes to helping students become passionate about STEM subjects.

Who's Eligible?

Eligible students must:

  • Be at least 16 years old

  • Be currently enrolled in high school

  • Live in the U.S.

How Many Students Can Apply?

There are an unlimited number of scholarships available, but only the first 100 students accepted will also have their Part 107 testing fee covered.

What Is the Deadline?

There is no deadline—applicants will be accepted on a rolling, case-by-case basis.

The scholarship provides free, unlimited access to Drone Pilot Ground School’s remote test prep course to help drone pilots pass the FAA’s Part 107 exam (the course usually costs $299).
